Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Chuck Berry RIP

John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-hosted the Mike Douglas show once for a week (taped in Jan. '72, to air in early Feb. '72). Although they'd never met, John got Berry ("my musical hero") booked as a guest that week. Chuck joined John and the band Elephants Memory for some pretty good readings of Berry hits, but don't miss the segments with the macrobiotic hippie chick (36:52) and the biofeedback guy 59:28.
Chuck bobs around on the periphery of these things like he has no idea how he got himself into this. Douglas and Lennon both at different times try to get him to wear an apron for the cooking bit and he never does put the thing on.

'Chuck don't wear no apron.'
